    I delete it, if you have too much spam I would probably recommend you to start asking your users to register before they will be able to submit their comments, that way you'll have to deal with less spam.

    I couldn't take it much longer so i got akismet to stop it. If you have time to delete it and cipher through it though it does help your site.

    comments are really useful. they add more life into your site.

    it is a must in my opinion.

    akismet takes care of 90% of the spam for me. :)

    really useful plugin.
